The Lobelia, she is a 1970s handmade Victoriana midaxi Prairie in a cotton blend fabric. She is fully lined.
The Lobelia has the most super gorgeous huge puffy sleeves, high neck and deep frill cuffs. She was sourced in December 2019 when I was contacted by a gentleman selling his late wifes collection.
I best recommend this dress for a UK size 6/8 to a small 10 as the sleeves are slim on the inside. She is also not as long as a usual maxi, so will be perfect as a midaxi or a maxi on a petite height.
Bust - 34"
Waist - 28"
Length - 51"
The Lobelia, has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She is a handmade item and the zipper is an open ended zipper. She is fully wearable but please be aware of this. She also had a mark on the front but this has more or less fully lifted and there is some minimal wear to the sleeves. You can also see the threads where the buttons have been sewn onto the cuffs. Please see photos. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree wash.
She has minimal signs of vintage wear. but please bare in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear we will state.
